SouthSide Man Charged with Selling Crack, Gun

 

A SouthSide man who pleaded guilty to robbery in 2009 sold crack cocaine on three occasions to a confidential informant and also sold an informant a gun linked to a Slatington theft, according to court records.

Jamardee Tamica Perez, 25, of the 1800 block of Lynfield Drive was charged with possession with intent to deliver crack cocaine; manufacture, delivering and possession; receiving stolen property; persons not to possess firearms; sale or transfer of firearms, and criminal use of a common facility.

The records say Perez:

  • Sold crack to an informant on March 27 at 1:33pm on the 1100 block of Dover Lane in Marvine-Pembroke.
  • Sold crack to an informant on March 29 at 6:42pm at Lynn Avenue and E. Fourth Street on the SouthSide.
  • Sold a 25-mm handgun to an informant on March 30 at 10:14am on the 1800 block of Lynfield.
  • Sold crack to an informant on April 4 at 11:33am on the 1800 block of Lynfield.

He also allegedly used a cell phone to arrange the transactions. The records do not list how much money he received for the crack and the gun.

The records say the gun was stolen from a Slatington man.

Court records say Perez pleaded guilty to a charge of robbery in November 2009. The incident was in Bethlehem.

In the latest case, he was arraigned Friday by on-duty District Judge Douglas Schlegel of Wind Gap and committed to Northampton County Prison after failing to post $50,000 bail.
